Today is the day! https://vectorhat.itch.io/byte-driver
Byte Driver combines a classic driving game with a bottom up shooter. Your car runs on energy. Using weapons and bumping into things will cost you energy. Energy and weapons are obtained by hacking the vehicles around you. Run out of energy, and you die.
Hope you like it! :)
Our jam buddy Giselle is going to be hosting a post jam play party on her twitch channel! Come hang out with her and your fellow creators and bask in the warm glow of the awesome stuff we made this week. She’s going to play everything that she can (windows exes or browser games) so get excited! The show starts at 11pm EST on Sunday at https://www.twitch.tv/RaineShadow. Hop on over now and give her a follow so you don’t miss it. I’ll see you there!
So it turns out we do need SOME rules. It's fine to continue an active project or revive a dead one as your jam. If you do that just let us know the details of where you where when you started and where you ended up.
It is not okay to simply submit and old project as a jam entry. I know it's tough to get noticed, but spamming a jam isn't the way. I'm sorry. I will remove your entry if I believe this is what you're doing.
This isn't a rated jam, so we don't have a problem with you using the time to continue an active project, especially if you think it works well with one of the jam themes. We'd just ask that you let everyone know what you had going in so we can see what you did during the jam. Oh, and don't work yourself to death! Your work is yours to continue after the jam to, of course.
I'll add a spot in the submission form for you to mention any pre-work.
Hi all. The good folks at Bit Bridge have generously offered us the use of their discord server for the duration of the jam. Bit Bridge is a group for indie game developers in the Pittsburgh, PA, U.S.A. area. They’re a friendly and knowledgeable bunch so pop in and introduce yourself and don’t be afraid to ask questions. We’ve got two channels #not-gdc-jam for gamedev related serious times and #not-gdc-jam-social for whatever else. Come on in, be nice, have fun, and jam on.
Update: we're now on the official notGDC discord.
It's been available here for a while but it's officially "released" now.
It's a single button thrust/shoot shooter. Supports up to eight simultaneous co-op or competitive players. It's fun! It's hard, but it has settings to let you make it not as hard so don't be scared. I like you.
I hope you like it.
I should really add some in game instructions. It's super simple really.
The umbrella does different things depending on where you stand.
TIP: Make a mental map of the action zones.
Did you get that "Bat Country" is an action zone?
I never shy away from a break-out clone! :)
I love it. Brutally hard with the digital controls. I'd play forever if my mouse was emulating a paddle. But still great fun and I loved the monochrome look.
My memories of breakout and super breakout are mostly from playing mo my grandmother's black & white TV in the early 80's, so I was right at home! :)
